When I was young and foolish, I too thought I wanted an M6. I was able to negotiate a fantastic price for a new one (2015 I think, as the new model year was coming out) at a dealership in OK. I...

Everything written above is true and accurate. I'll add that as a lease, you'll be walking away from the car in a few years, so what do you care if it has long-term damage? It won't affect you at...

When my then GF (now my wife) was car shopping, I suggested that she buy a BMW. She was afraid of the maintenance costs, so I said if she bought one, I'd take care of everything for her. She did:...

Good luck to both of you. It sounds like the engine is lugging. At 1100 RPM that would be expect behavior. At 1900, not so much.

Fortunately, I have the I6, so it's not an issue for me...

I had this happen to me on my F30. Very annoying. It hasn't happened to me on the F06, but then it's a 2017 with iDrive 5.0. They may have fixed the bug.

Yes, it's annoying.

No, the least they can do is nothing, which is what it sounds like they are doing. The brakes are still (barely) within specs.

In English, :D he's asking for the residual value and money factor. That's what you need to plug into a calculator to see what's what.

Yeah, as @ndinh said, it could mean any of a million things, most of which are serious. You need to take it to a proper BMW specialist or dealer. Autozone isn't going to be able to tell you much.

The only way you can get CPO is if a BMW dealer sells the car. They won't do it for someone off the street who bought it at the Buick dealer.

As I understand it, it's usually around $2500 for the CPO, plus whatever they've got to do it to get it up to specs (tires, deferred service, etc.) but that may likely be different for a diesel.

That's not for me, as I don't do chrome wheels, but it's a good look and I think your price is fair. You may have better luck with eBay, especially if they will fit 3 series cars.
